Post #860: How is Governor Christie doing?

Posted on October 10, 2020

This is just a brief followup to Post #853, where I noted that Governor Chris Christie seemed to have dropped out of the news cycle.  He was hospitalized last Saturday, and was discharged to home, from the hospital today, after a seven-day stay.

Near as I can tell, the White House did not, in fact, offer the standard pro-forma “thoughts and prayers” statement of concern for his well-being.  (Although I may have missed it).  That was one of the things I was looking for, in tracking this story.  And I guess, unfortunately, I got the answer I expected.

By contrast, many New Jersey politicians of both parties, including the current governor, offered words of concern and messages of support.

I know nothing of the tenor of New Jersey politics, but for a state with a reputation for toughness, their politicians’ civility in this matter puts the White House to shame.
